4:09am
and horrible everything. you're just not going to have it. now they're going to make it into this monster, largest airline i guess in the world. certainly in this country. but in the world. and there is no competition. the way this country was built is through competition. and i'm not big for stopping corporate mergers. i'm really the opposite of that. but when these airlines get together, we're going to end up having a couple of airlines? it's ridiculous. this is one case where if government got involved and said, folks, go out and run your airlines well and compete, i think it would be a positive thing. this is not a good idea. you'll have bad service and high ticket prices. >> steve: we should point out that you know something about airlines 'cause you had the trump airline for a while that shuttled folks up and down the eastern seaboard. >> right. i had a shuttle which i actually sold to u.s. air and worked out okay. the airline business is a very tough business. that i can tell you. every problem you can have. >> anna: do you think there is
4:10am
any chance there will be fare wars among some of the smaller airlines and that there is any chance even on a few routes there could be better ticket prices or when people are saying that, are you nixing that? >> the problem is they're taking over all the slots at the big airports. so when you have all the slots, it's very hard to get new slots. it's not like you can just get into that business. not as easy as it sounds. the airlines have these slots and when you merge and you have all the slots, it's a very hard thing to compete. so really you're creating a monopoly situation. what's going to happen is very, very high ticket prices and really probably a continuation of bad service. >> peter: i'd like to get your take on what seems to be an explosive maneuver by the obama administration. their equal opportunity employment commission says it should be a crime to refuse to hire ex convicts. what are your thoughts about that? >> i don't like it.
4:11am
and certainly it's fine if you want to hire an ex-convict if you feel good about it. but some of these people have really done some pretty bad things and i can see employers not wanting to do it. and to be forced to do that is government involvement and this is a bad case of government involvement. the fact is, who wants to do this? this is crazy. and they'll have very harsh penalties. >> peter: if someone was convicted of armed robbery or burglary, would you want that kind of person at your resort or golf club or building? >> no, i would not want that type of person. i think it would be -- it's a tough situation, but when -- it goes beyond the prison. sheriffed their term and you can say they've absolved their self of their problem. but the fact is, it's still there and it's in the back of everyone's mind and everybody knows it and no, you should not be forced. now, if you want to do that, i think that's fantastic. if you want to hire an ex-con,
4:12am
that's fantastic. but you have to want to do it. maybe they meet special needs. or -- for the government to be forcing you to hire ex-convicts is insane. >> anna: especially when our men and women are coming back from war and many of our veterans, unemployment rate is just through the roof. they can't find jobs. >> absolutely right. tough situation, but you can't be forced to do that. absolutely. >> steve: the other thing is, if somebody applies and you don't hire them, then they can turn around and sue you. they didn't hire me 'cause i'm an ex-con. >> according to what i've read, it's very, very severe penalties, too. beyond just being sued, the government imposes severe penalties on you if you don't hire the ex-convict. >> steve: oh, boy. >> can you really say as we've been saying, what is this country coming to? >> steve: we've got a question for you, mr. trump. how high is your chair? >> in my office? i think it's pretty normal.
4:13am
>> steve: the reason we mention this is barbara cork -- corkerran, was quoted in this month's magazine said this, look at donald trump's desk. how high is his seat? maybe 15 feet tall? when you're sitting across from him, you're a mini me. what's she talking about? >> i think it's very nice statement. i think she's probably referring to me rather than the chair. i've done a lot of business with barbara. she's terrific person. and you know, i think that's supposed to be a compliment. i'm not sure. >> peter: i've been in your post office it seems like a normal chair. normal desk. it seems it's the same height. >> it is a very normal height, believe me. it is. it accomplishes a lot of work behind that desk. we work hard and we enjoy it. >> steve: but of course, you're not today chained to that desk. you're down at marla -- mar
4:14am
lago. >> steve: have a great week. >> thank you. >> anna: maybe we'll just have to get pillows or apple boxes for the people that come into his office. that's what we do here. >> steve: i don't know what she's talk being. we've shot stories in his office. >> peter: evidently they have a good relationship. sounds like it was in fun. >> steve: coming up on this monday morning, want to know what heaven is like? this woman says she's been there and it's amazing and she never wants to do come back, but she did. her unbelievable story of crossing over coming up. >> peter: are you worried the government is getting too big? our next guest says you should be worried 'cause the president isn't just overstepping, he's actually trampling the constitution. a warning everyone would like to hear coming up i'm doing my own sleep study. advil pm® or tylenol pm.

4:18am
>> peter: welcome back. you heard prominent democrats make the promise over and over again, the government is not getting any bigger, but according to a new pew research poll, the american people aren't buying it. the majority, 53%, feel the federal government threatens their personal rights and freedoms. that's the highest rate since pew launched this poll in 1995. joining us now the man who hopes to put an end to that, virginia phone general ken cuccinelli, author of the new book "the last line of defense," one of our great attorney generals of the united states. good morning. >> good morning. good to be with you. >> peter: tell us, are the days of constitutional government over? is the federal government overreaching every day in every way. >> no, no. >> peter: give us some hope. tell us what can be done. >> first of all, it's not over reaching every day in every way, but right now it's overreaching on more days in more ways than probably ever has before in
4:19am
yours and my lifetime. what we wrote about in the book is the role of states, attorneys general primarily, pushing back when the federal government breaks the law or violates the constitution. just look in the last month. last month we in virginia beat the epa, which i refer to as the employment prevention agency 'cause they're so good at that -- we recount that in the book and i would note, we had a democrat co- plaintiff. this isn't just a republican undertaking. we had a democrat local board of supervisors join us in that case. also last month, the president lost on a constitutional case with the national labor relations board, his so-called recess appointments that weren't recess appointments at all, which wiped out a year's worth of their work, as it should have because he essentially tried to unconstitutionally impose them on that board. >> peter: so you had the epa, the fcc, the nrb, and now this
4:20am
massive health care environment run by the federal government in the united states. >> right. >> peter: what do people do to respond? >> you know, i actually get asked a lot. people come up to me, oh, the government did x, fill in the blank, whatever it might be. can we sue them? the answer most of the time is no, because most of what they do is addressed in elections. you don't like what they're doing, vote differently and show up and vote and not everybody does, of course. but there are a lot of times -- i mean, this is our second lawsuit with the epa where they're breaking the law. while this has been a both republican and democrat phenomenon in the past, we've never seen an administration so aggressive about it. we walk through example after example of how bigger government, federal government, is breaking the law over and over and how states are pushing back. but you asked about individuals.
4:21am
there are times when the state cannot step in, where it takes an individual person or an individual company to actually fight back and other americans count on those people to do that. but for a lot of these fights, the states can step in and the founders expected us to do that. they designed our system of government so that the states would be the last line of defense pushing back when the federal government overreached. >> peter: attorney general ken cuccinelli, the new book "the last line of defense," good to see you. see you coming soon. >> thank you, sir. good to be with you. >> peter: coming up, the marines' newest recruit. i met a lot of them over the weekend. not this one. a puppy! anna likes that puppy. we will explain. and then, think heaven doesn't exist? tell that to this woman. she says she has been there. her unbelievable story of crossing over to the other side and coming back next

4:27am
neck, breast, under my arps, up to my abdomen. >> anna: you were so thin there, too. there you're least smiling. but i imagine it was tough to smile through all this. you say you couldn't really lift your head at times? >> i couldn't, because my neck was really weak. in fact, the photo doesn't even show the worst time because when i was at my worst, i refused to have my pictures taken. i couldn't walk. i was in a wheelchair. i had an oxygen mask all the time. i had these big open skin lesions. and i was all puffed up here from the tumors. >> anna: wow. >> and my lungs were filled with fluid, so i was choking all the time when i would try to talk. >> anna: it sounds more miserable than anything i can imagine. take us back again. you go into this coma and how long are you in the coma for? >> i was in the coma for about 1 1/2 days, about 30 hours. the doctors said now my organs had shut down and so these were my final hours, this was the final stage.
4:28am
and they told my husband and my mom who were there by my bedside that these were my final hours and i wouldn't be coming out. >> anna: what was going on in your own body and in your own mind at that time? >> oh, gosh. in fact, i didn't even realize i was in a coma. i was so alert and so aware. more aware than i am in this physical state. but it was just the most incredible feeling. i felt like i was just like embraced by this incredible love, like unconditional, warm love. it was nothing like i've ever experienced in physical life before. >> anna: what a lot of people who -- not that there are a lot of people who have been through this, but books who have had near death experiences say they've cock into contact with some of their deceased relatives and that happened for you as well. >> it did. i came into contact with my father. he passed away ten years prior and when i was growing up, i had a very turbulent relationship with him because our values just
4:29am
didn't match. we clashed on a loft things. he had traditional hindu values and i didn't embrace them the way he did. i ran away from an arranged marriage. but in that realm, all i felt from him and for him was unconditional love. it was like he understood everything i was feeling. i had felt that i had disappointed him and let him down. but it was just incredible the love i felt from him. >> anna: even doctors who have these scientific minds, you tell us had incredible things to say. your oncologist said which ever way i look at it, you should be dead. how does at that make you feel, to -- even these doctors believed this is a miracle. this wasn't their doing. >> no. and the thing is, some of the doctors tried to say that oh, yeah. it was the drugs. and other doctors are saying, there is no way. you were just so weak. how could you have turned around from that late stage? >> anna: lastly, what can we all take away from this and who did you decide you were going to be when you woke up?
4:30am
>> i was gonna be awe they weren't hispanic true to myself and i learned life is a gift and our only person is to be who we are and to treat life like a gift and every day is valuable. we all make it so complicated. we try to find our purpose. i learned that all i have to do is be as me as i can be. >> anna: i love it. thank you so much for your time today. >> thank you. >> steve: straight ahead, we've all been on a flight with a crying baby. but i bet you've never experienced this. a total stranger slapping that baby in the face. it's true. to that kid. the details are next. then looking for a new car on the cheap side? the one car dealers are trying to unload the most right now. it's a wheel of a deal as we roll on live from new york city [ fishing rod casting line, marching band playing ]

how can it be you would only spend a few days? >> anna: sometimes stars surround themselves with a certain type of person who does not end up taking care of them the way that the average joe would be taken care of. she seemed to have so much going for her. she had taken the stage with tim mcgraw and alan jackson and george strait, the song you heard, i could go on and on of the and then has this huge fall from grace and her social life really messes up her success. how does that happen to someone? >> well, therein is this vulnerability. when you're talking about the potential of major depression being present, that deprives people of rational thought. it's very close to being delusional, where your kids don't seem to rate, your cherished pet, her dog, whose life she apparently took before her own, doesn't seem to rate. nothing seems like it can change. that's the deep blackness that encircles you when you're in the midst of the worst kind of major depression and the reason why
4:37am
people really need time to be reached when they're hospitalized. you can't turn them around in 48 hours. >> peter: when we hear this, we feel so helpless in so many ways. we say, this was a talented woman, but you look at this legacy that she left in terms of arrests and pain killers and alcohol and even a suicide attempt in 2005. people say, can that happen in our own families' lives? we see it happened to her boyfriend a month ago. how do people come to terms with this and how do they take on an issue like this, especially when someone checks in, as you point on, on their own and is then released and goes on to commit suicide? >> here is the key, you know, people say kids are resilient. they're not that resilient. if you've suffered in your life, in early development or in later years, your adolescence, it can really lay you low. so we have to have great respect
4:38am
for just how severe these illnesses can be and how we have to bring ourselves to them. i'm sure she could afford the best in psychiatric care and yet somebody decided a very short stay for this woman riddled with drug abuse and multiple, multiple episodes with depression, suicide attempts should go home 48 hours later? it's an amazing thing. we got to look at our mental health care system. i keep saying it. here is another reminder. >> steve: it must be examined. dr. keith ablow, joining us live. thank you. >> thank you for having me. >> steve: you bet. >> peter: now the rest of your headlines. she says a stranger slapped her two-year-old son on a flight and now that mom is speaking out. jessica bennett says the man used a racial slur and even drew blood when he slapped her little boy. >> i said, what did you say?
4:39am
because i could not believe that he would say that. he said it again. but even more hateful. >> peter: the suspect is facing a federal assault charge. he's also out of a job. he's been suspended from his job as president of unitex composite in idaho. the company's ceo says that that kind of behavior contradicts the company's values. i imagine it would if it's true. >> steve: no kidding. overnight, an afghan insurgent accused of killing a soldier is now dead. he and his accomplice were killed during a raid. army first lieutenant thompson died in the attack. two other american soldiers were also wounded. >> anna: show your gun and get a discount on a pizza? a virginia beach pizza shop is offering the special deal for gun owners. the owner of all around pizza
4:40am
carries a gun and hires drivers with concealed carry permits. he says the 15% discount is just another way to support the second amendment. customers either have to bring their gun in with them or show their concealed carry permit to get the discount. >> steve: i got a feeling his drivers generally don't get robbed. >> anna: there was a burrito place where i went to school in wilmington, north carolina, which was show your tat tuesday. if you showed your tattoo, you got a free pizza. >> steve: moving on, the northeast bracing for more today. this system not expected to pack as much of a punch as it could. but it's going to be a mess for folks going to work or taking the day off today. it is president's day. maria molina is tracking all of this in the outdoors where currently the wind chill in new york city is 2. >> yes. it was 2 degrees about an hour ago. it's warming up. now it's 4 degrees. it's just going to feel frigid throughout the morning hours. the one bit of good news i have in the northeast is that the
4:41am
wind will be dying down as we head into the afternoon hours. we'll have sunshine and temperatures right around where they should be at this time of year. so not too bad for president's day. a lot of you will have it off. a lot of sunshine expected and generally dry conditions in the northeast. florida, if you're headed down there for president's day, today will be a cold day down there. look at these current temperatures. in the 20s across portions of the florida panhandle. 20s in the city of jacksonville, orlando at 35 degrees. very cold out there. we have hard freeze warnings in effect this morning. no fear. by tuesday, back into the 80s across portions of florida. otherwise we have a storm system that's developing across portion of the north central, producing blizzard conditions. temperatures today in the north central, not too bad. 30s in minneapolis. also in rapid city, otherwise a warm day in texas, 79 in san antonio. nice warm day there. >> steve: allall right. not here though. maria outside where it's 4 now. thank you. >> anna: 20 minutes before the hour.
4:42am
you might want to get those burgers and steaks now if you have room in your freezer. >> peter: lauren simonetti tells us why. >> good morning. stock up now. beef is what's not for dinner. if you're thinking of grilling out this summer, definitely make room in the freezer. beef prices expected to rise as much as 10%. why? high corn prices have led farmers to keep smaller herds when global demand for beef is up. supermarkets packages meat in smaller portions. beef isn't the only protein starting to feel like lobster. chicken prices also at record levels. averaging $2 a pound last year. it's cheaper than beef, but i got to tell you, you'll be screaming chicken no matter what when you pay for this. >> steve: let's talk about gasoline. >> yeah. you'll be screaming chicken on this one, too. we might have already gotten used to the fact that gas prices are so high. the national average, 3.73 a gallon. increase of 14 cents in the past week.
4:43am
forty-three cents in the past month. some oil analysts are surprised to see the price so high in february. not many people take to the roads, right? and they're really concerned about what's going to happen next month. it starts to get warmer. people start to drive more. they have that summer blend, which is more expensive. so $4 a gallon really just days away. >> steve: speak of driving. >> anna: yeah. what about if you're in the market for a new car? >> we have options. we'll show awe wide range of deals you might want to pounce on now. this list, variety of options like the economy kia rio. gives buyers a 20% discount in february. and you got the toyota sequoia, a gas guzzler. 16% saving. the mazda 3 and audi making the list. those are the best new car deals for february. >> steve: way to go. i think you just saved people some money. >> i hope so. >> anna: it's huge. >> yeah, i know. >> steve: thank you very much. >> good to see you. >> steve: coming up on this president's day, a ten-ton meteor rocking russia without any warning.
4:44am
look at that. what are the chances of this happening again as it did at the end of last week? is there anything we can do on earth to stop it? >> anna: and then the moments that changed the world. a look back at the presidents who helped make america the greatest country on earth. >> peter: first the aflac trivia question of the day. born on this day in 1968, this famous redheaded actress is part of the '80s brat pack. who is she? be the first to e-mail us with the correct answer music: "make someone happy" music: "make someone happy" ♪it's so important to make meone happy.♪.♪it's so e ♪make just one heart to heart you - you sing to♪

4:48am
holiday, let's take moment to remember some of the great men who helped shape our nation. our guest has some of the greatest moments in presidential history. good morning to you, nick. >> good morning, steve. >> steve: everybody knows the story about washington throwing the dollar across the potomac and chopping down a cherry tree with a hatchet, if those stories are true. you've actually got some stories about some real presidents who did real things. let's start with ronald reagan. >> yeah. >> the temptation of pride, the temptation of lively -- declaring yourselves above it all and label both sides equally, to ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of an evil empire. >> steve: okay. we kind of messed up the sound at the top. the good part was at the educational background where he referred to the former soviet union as the evil empire. how did that change things? >> i mean, reagan had wanted to
4:49am
say that for a while. he gave that speech in '83. he wanted to say that in 1981 and dell but his advisors talked him out of it. he branded the soviets as evil. he put them on notice that he would not treat them like nixen and carter had. he wanted to create a dichotomy between us and them. he felt like if he could, that would precipitate the beginning of the end of the cold war and he was exactly right. >> steve: let's go back a number of years, teddy roosevelt had this great idea. we could become a super power if we had a navy that could travel somehow between the atlantic and the pacific, hence the panama canal, right? >> yeah. it was a bold move. if you remember then, we didn't have a two-ocean navy. he felt in order for us to be a global super four and he had that vision long before anybody else did, we needed a navy in both oceans. how we got about the panama canal was controversial. it was owned by colombia. he sort of incited a bit of revolution in panama and then created a deal with them to take
4:50am
that land and finish what the french could not, create the canal. i don't think any other president but teddy roosevelt would have had the gumption to do that. it turned onto to begin the creation of the u.s. super power. >> steve: and of course, i read from your notes, he was the first president to ever visit a foreign nation while in office when he went down make sure they were digging up the canal right. right? >> yeah. there was a famous picture of him at the canal site. he was very hands on. teddy roosevelt really believed in activist government. he took a trip down to oversee some of the construction. >> steve: all right. meanwhile, let's take folks back to 1962, president john f. kennedy at rice university in texas. >> i climb the highest mountain, 35 years ago, fly the atlantic. why does rice play texas? we choose to go to the moon! [ applause ] we choose to go to the moon in this day and do the other things. not because they are easy, but
4:51am
because they are hard. >> steve: such a great speech and we were already in the midst of the space race back then. >> we were. it just started. that was 1962. we were still behind in the space race. the soviets had been the first to put a satellite no orbit. they had the first astronaut in space. we were still behind. there was supposedly a missile gap between us and the soviets, although it turns out that wasn't true. that was -- he wanted to challenge us to get ahead of the space race really so that we could brand the united states as the country of science and engineering and not the soviets and convince those other emerging markets that they should be capitalists and not communism. that was an important moment. i think it was a bold declaration and we pulled it off. but we put the man on the moon in the summer of 1969. >> steve: we did it within the decade. nick, always a pleasure. thanks very much for joining us on this president's day. >> good chatting with you. >> steve: it's now ten minutes before the top of the hour on this monday. next up, a ten-ton meteor rocking russia. look at that dash cam video.
4:52am
no warning. what are the chances of that happening here? will we ever be able to see it coming first? look at that. first this date in history back in 1984, "carmen camille on" by culture club. everybody was singing it [ male announcer ] in blind taste tests, even ragu users chose prego. prego?! but i've bought ragu for years.

4:55am
>> anna: welcome back. the answer to the aflac question of the day is molly wing we'd. our winner is lisa in raleigh, north carolina. >> peter: i would have won. a ten ton meteor crashing into central russia last week as
4:56am
onlookers watched in horror. (scream). >> peter: the space rocket explosion triggered chaos in the streets and more than 1,000 people were injured, including 200 children. a couple days later, reports of a possible sighting in california? luckily no impact or damage there. >> steve: so what can we do if a meteor is headed for planet earth? here with some answers is research scientist, paul, who joinses from los angeles. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> steve: they said last week, last friday that we didn't see that thing coming. is there somebody who is supposed to be look out there saying okay. i see one. it's going to hit us on tuesday? >> nasa has a program to search for these objects and we've done a good job at finding the large ones. we put the priority on finding the large one first. the one that hit on friday was really a tiny asteroid, pretty small. >> anna: it's wild that this
4:57am
tiny one caused this much damage. you say mostly what you're looking for are the ones that are 400 feet in size and up, right? >> yes. a city block and larger. those are ones that would reach the surface. the one that hit over russia was broken up by the atmosphere. so there was only the damage from the shock wave. the larger ones, if they reach the surface in one piece, can cause great damage. >> peter: when you talk about the larger ones, what are we talking about? something as big as a kilometer? do those exist? >> oh, yes. oh, yes. and that's about a half mile. nasa has done a good job of finding 95% of those ones. the idea is to find them many, many years before they could hit the earth and calculate when and where the hazard is and if there is a hazard sometime in the future, then we could possibly do something about it. >> steve: now, you've just touched on the part we all want to know about. do something about it. tell me, the u.s. government does have a rocket somewhere
4:58am
pointing up that can shoot one of these things out of the sky. >> well, the plan would be to -- if we went ahead with this, would be to build a spacecraft to go up into space and knock the thing off course, just slightly, many years before it was near the earth. >> steve: hurry. just in case. all right. paul, research scientist near earth object program at nasa in l.a., paul, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> anna: 7:56. how well do you know your presidents? bet you don't know which one was also a bartender. we're about to put you to the test at the top of the hour. >> steve: then a guaranteed good night's sleep like a spa experience in your bedroom for under 15 bucks. you're not going to want to miss it while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain
4:59am
so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, including celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. do not take celebrex if you've had an asthma attack, hives, or other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides.

5:04am
her front porch. the same place her boyfriend died last month in an apparent suicide. the local sheriff it appears she died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. ♪ i do it all the time ♪ when the shoe's on the other foot ♪ ♪? back in 1996, she scored a number one billboard country hit with this song "guys do it all the time." but in recent years, she received more media attention for her troubled personal life than for her music. she struggled with addiction, mental illness and was arrested several times. she also fought a lengthy and bitter battle with her own mother over custody of her oldest son. she is at fox back in 2010 in this video you're about to see on "fox & friends." >> steve: it's been six years since you've done an album. where you been? >> gosh, i've been getting into
5:05am
a lot of trouble. >> steve: you have been. >> yeah, i have. never prison. jail and prison are two different things. >> steve: man, we've got a lot to talk about in the after the show show then. >> we do. i've done a lot of work to stay out of trouble now. so i am seeking redemption. >> last night country music stars expressed condolences on hearing the news of her death. carrie underwood said i grew up listening to her. so sad. many prayers. winona judd tweeted, oh, my mindy. dear sweet girl. this is so sad. it breaks my heart what addiction continues to take from this life. shortly after her boyfriend's death last month, mccready was order to do enter rehab and her two children were actually taken away from her at that point. mindy mccready was very young, only 37 years old. anna, steve, peter, sad news to report this morning. steve, you actual lea got to meet her. tragic and sad to see that video of her there in your studio.
5:06am
>> steve: what a great talent. anesy, thank you very much. >> sure. >> anna: moving to another developing story this monday morning, a massive fire is burning out of control right now in tampa, florida. a recycling plant has eruptd into flames. this is new video from our affiliate in faa tampa. firefighters say that's a huge pile of metal that's burning. some reports suggest it could be hazardous material. drivers on nearby highways say the smoke can be seen for miles away. so far no reports of any injuries. a brand-new bombshell report revealing oscar pistorius might have killed his girlfriend in a boozey rage. sources say cops found steroids and heavy evidence of drinking during a search of his home and they discovered a blood covered cricket bat, leading investigators to believe he may have attacked her before the shooting. the white house is trying to backtrack today after a draft of the president's plan on immigration was leaked over the
5:07am
weekend. critics say it outlines the president's plan to provide amnesty for immigrants already living here in the united states illegally. the administration is calling it just a plan b. but lawmakers say the plan shows the president is not serious about the immigration reform. >> we are doing exactly what we said we would do, which is we'll be prepared in the event that the bipartisan talks going on the hill which by the way were very aggressively supporting. if those do not work out, then we'll have an option that we'll be ready to put out. >> leaking this out does set things in the wrong direction. look, the question that we always had to ask ourselves, particularly with this white house, is the president looking for a partisan advantage or is he looking for a bipartisan law? >> anna: this coming after the president spent a weekend away golf not guilty -- golfing in florida. he went 27 holes and shot somewhere in the 80s. woods bowed out after 18 to head to another golfing outing.
5:08am
danica patrick becoming the first woman to win the pole at the daytona 500. jeff gordon will start second. she topped 196 miles an hour. >> but i think it just shows what a great organization it is and when you bought good group -- put a good group of people together what can do. >> anna: and those are your headlines. >> steve: go daddy. rather it should be go mama. >> anna: hot mama. >> steve: that's right. today is president's day. we've got some fun facts about the presidents that you probably have never heard before. number one is? >> peter: george washington never lived in the white house. the capitol is actually located in philadelphia and other cities when washington was president. he's also, steve, the only president who didn't represent a political party and he was a member of what party 'cause you told me already? >> steve: classified as an inpenitentiary.
5:09am
>> peter: correct. >> anna: was matured where? in new york, right? >> peter: that's what he said. we want back and forth to philadelphia, new york. wall street. let's go. number two. >> anna: thomas jefferson was the very first president to be inaugurated in washington, d.c. >> steve: meanwhile, here is a good one. grover cleveland is the only president to have been elected to two nonconsecutive terms. he was the 22nd president, then he did not become the 23rd. he was the 24th, though. which is kind of odd. >> anna: abraham lincoln is the only united states president who was also a licensed bartender. he was co-owner of barry and lincoln, a saloon in springfield, illinois. >> peter: finally, james madison was the shortest of the presidents. standing at only 5' 4. and he never weighed more than 100 pounds. >> anna: a little guy. >> steve: no kidding. >> anna: people didn't even know. it didn't matter as much. >> steve: you never know. all right. meanwhile, let's talk a little about this.
5:10am
there is a new york state senator who is trying to overturn a law that prevents new yorkers from having pigs inside their houses. that's the fellow right there, tony, a democrat from here in new york. peter, explain this to me. >> peter: tony avella is focusing in and we brought the story nationally about petey the pig and the family in white stone, queens and the city is trying to take this wonderful pig away from the family and now they may want to even evict the family. the health department says you better get rid of that pig or we're going to dispose of it. petey is an important part of that family. they lost a relative in that family. petey is a legacy and they love this pig. >> anna: they say the pig even goes in bed with the kids, that pigs are a lot cleaner than you think. you mentioned he was the legacy of a lost family member, the brother, or uncle of the children died in a motorcycle accident, we're told.
5:11am
this is not the only family dealing with this. there is also a former -- army veteran who is dealing with the same thing in the same area and she apparently tried to get this pig deemed a therapy animal. >> steve: wilbur. >> anna: the health department would not allow it. >> peter: we need to save wilbur and petey. the new york city has to stop it and get real. the pigs have got to stay. what do you say? save the pigs or throw them out? >> anna: just like a rap video. >> steve: here is the thing, here in new york city, if you own a pig at your house, you can get a ticket. >> peter: yes. they have. >> steve: a lot of people have. but some people are incensed. wait a minute, mayor bloomberg's daughter brought a pig to gracie mansion this past thanksgiving. >> peter: it sounds like outing mayor bloomberg, god bless him for having a pig. pigs all around. obviously they're safe. they're healthy. they're helping these families,
5:12am
whether it's the mayor's family or these folks in queens. >> anna: other people saying if you want your pig, then move to a different county. and some neighbors are not happy about having the pig. >> peter: president's day gift. save the pig. >> steve: all right. straight ahead on this president's day, he took seven bullets during the massacre at fort hood and survived. this victim says the real pain is how our government is treating him. sergeant alonzo licenseford joins us live next. >> anna: then before you consider a sleeping pill, you might want to consider this. the pillow for your face. but does it work? ostrich pillow. stick around for all that and a whole lot more [ female announcer ] pillsbury crescents are awesome.

shooter major nidal malik hasan at fort hood speaking out about the way she and other victims have been treated by the federal government following the tragedy. >> not to the least little bit have the victims been taken care of. in fact, they've been neglected. >> peter: show and more than 100 others have joined a lawsuit against the government who they say is doing little to help them in the aftermath of the shooting. staff sergeant alonzo luntzford is one of the victims involved and joins us live. good morning, sergeant. >> good morning. >> peter: were you shot by a terrorist or co-worker? >> by a terrorist. >> peter: what's the difference in terms of how the president and the federal government has responded to your needs based upon your courageious acts on that day? >> well, one of the differences is that it was a ptsd clinic that typically army service
5:17am
members could go to that's located at walter reed, or was located at walter reed. i was accepted to go there, then when they found out who i was, i was denied because the individuals that were in charge of that ptsd clinic were the same individuals that was in charge of major nidal malik hasan when he was stationed at walter reed. >> steve: so they thought what? >> they thought it would be a conflict of interest by me being there and in turn, they said we will send you down to fort bliss for treatment. well, fort bliss denied me because they said i was not a combat veteran. so basically i was just out there stuck as far as getting treatment for ptsd and tbi. which in turn a friend of a -- a support of a fort hood shooting victims and survivors end up sending me to a submarine base in california. >> steve: so you agree with sergeant nunley who says the president of the united states made promises to the victims
5:18am
that they'd be -- that you would be taken care of and that has not been the case? >> not all together, no. promises were made to us that we would be taken care of and that our families would not have anything to worry of today, that within all together true. >> peter: sergeant, thank you for your service and thank you for what you did on that day. how many times were you shot? >> seven. >> peter: and you're still having bullets being taken out of you to this day? >> i still have one more that needs to be taken out. >> peter: have you ever tried to contact the president of the united states and if you did, what kind of response did you get? >> well, i have not had a chance to contact him directly because since the shooting, i just been focusing on my care. and i felt like that time would come because we didn't get chance to see him when he came to fort hood. he went to darnell army hospital. we were in scott and white hospital. so we did not have the opportunity to see him when he

came down. >> peter: the white house likes to watch this show, so what would you say to the president of the united states right now? >> mr. president, my commander in chief, by all laws abiding, would you please make sure that we're taken care of so we can be at peace of mind and let's try to get this trial over with so we can close this chapter in our lives and move on. >> steve: well put. somebody from the white house is watching. somebody can relay that message to him. what has incensed us is the fact that the department of justice has classified this as workplace violence. not terrorism. when major hasan was shooting you seven times, what was he yelling? >> allah akbar. the interesting thing about when he was shooting me, it was the look that he had on his face. >> steve: which was what? >> no feeling. >> steve: no feeling. >> none whatsoever. >> steve: and when you talk about workplace violence, it's
5:20am
not every day that you hear that the guy with the gun is shooting allah akbar. that's what we associate with terrorism. >> absolutely. he had a plan. he went through all the steps that any normal individual would go through that were doing their jihad. so we need to go ahead and let that be known and he is a terrorist. it's not our fault that he ended up getting to our military, but you have people that's in our military that end up following suit like this. so we have channels that will take care of that. see right now, step on the outside, you would think that major nidal malik hasan was the victim and we didn't matter. that is one of the things that upsets all of us. he's not the victim. >> peter: sergeant, you're not a victim either. we wish you healing and health and god's best. thank you for your courage and your service. >> you're welcome. thank you very much. >> steve: all right. it is now 19 minutes after the top of the hour.

5:41am
in terms of where we're going with our paychecks? >> you ultimately see it in the bottom line. ultimately i heard the griping from my employees. when they saw it in their paychecks. ultimately what you have is obama and pelosi and the democrats are talking about a middle class and ultimately i see the difference between a government class and a middle class. you have obama golfing with tweeze and nancy pelosi saying it's beneath the dignity of congress to take a pay cut. >> peter: what you're saying is there is a permanent government class that these rules don't apply to. that they live a lifestyle that other folks don't have the capacity for. is that right? >> absolutely. >> steve: spencer, you're the president of your own insurance agency. are you seeing with yourself, are you seeing it with your customers? what are people feeling when they're trying to scrape dollars together to get homeowners, auto, all kinds of insurance that they need in their lives? >> everybody is seeing it. as a trusted choice independent insurance agent, i work with 3,000 families on their home and
